Does anyone else seem to think these cars have a horrible turning radius? I also own a 2006 350z and the turning radius is vastly better. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to improve the turning of these cars. It's annoying to have to make a 3 point turn every time I leave my house in the mustang. My 350z makes the turn no problem...

Turning radius blows compared to previous vehicles I have own. Surprisingly, my wife's 05 jeep liberty has had the best turning radius of all our vehicles.

Shorten the wheelbase, increase the steering angle, or employ throttle oversteer.

Definitely not the best turning radius but I get around ok. Nothing like my Explorer Sport tho.... I can filp a U in my driveway lol. I have heard swapping in the Cobra A-arms improves our turn radius a lil bit, plus they have stiffer bushings and better ball joints. Pretty cheap swap if look around

Mine is terrible. I have 8" wide rims in the front and installed thicker rack limiters to keep them from rubbing. Have to pull a 5 point turn to get into most parking spots. It's funny, I will never make a U-turn on any somewhat busy street. Have to make a left, then go down to a dead spot and turn around, come back and make a right....unless I break the rear end loose like previosuly mentioned. My BMW spoils me, it could drive circles around my mustang, still like the stang better though.
